Rick Riley - The VOICE of the Minnesota Vikings - Joins Love That Voiceover!
part 1 of 2
Rick Riley, VO artist & storyteller, is a former radio personality with almost 30 yrs behind the mic, with 16 yrs doing a drive time show in Miami. Swept out of Clear Channel, he searched for his roots and found VO. He is the VOICE of the Minnesota Vikings and a feature voice for NFL films. And More... Audio was his LIFE, but Rick Riley didn’t want to do voiceover after a very successful Miami 30 yr drive-time radio show. However, Clear Channel shut that down, so he had to move on. Rick tried to do a syndicated show, but it didn’t take off as he wanted. He decided, with outside encouragement, to step into voiceover, trying “pay to play” as a first step. Guess what? He didn’t like how he sounded doing commercials! He felt really green compared to national talent, but didn’t know why. He got coaching from Nancy Wolfson, learned a TON about script interpretation… pretty soon he got an agent, started booking jobs… Once he was more confident of his own ability… the dominoes fell! He’s a natural storyteller.. And has learned how commercials have changed: Selling the product “ain’t” selling the product! Now with the Minnesota Vikings production company, they’ve won 3 Emmy’s and both he and the producers acknowledge what the other does. Help your clients feel like each of them is No. 1!
